Coolangatta Joel Parkinson secured a last-minute Round 2 victory during the Quiksilver Pro France when he defeated wildcard Marc Lacomare in the dying seconds to advance into Round 3.
In earlier rounds, Taj Burrow (Yallingup, WA) advanced into Round 3 in France. In the third heat of the day Burrow posted a heat total of 16.80 points (out of a possible 20.00) to defeat Bede Durbidge (AUS) and Marc Lacomare (FRA) and advanced into Round 3.
The lack of decent swell has meant several lay days – organisers will reassess the waves on Tuesday. The Quiky Pro France has a waiting period from September 26 to October 6.
